  STS071-748-049 Last Mountain Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada July 1995
Last Mountain Lake (elongated, dark feature near center of image), Canada's first Migratory Bird Sanctuary, is located northwest of the provincial capital of Regina. This lake and adjacent basins provide a variety of habitats for natural and managed migratory birds. The large angular field patterns that cover the landscape show that this region of south central Saskatchewan is used extensively for agriculture, particularly for the production of wheat. Sections of the Arm River and the main channel of the Qu'Appelle River can be traced across the relatively flat terrain in the lower right quadrant of the picture. The dark, uniform looking areas are slightly elevated land where little or no large scale farming is taking place.
